John Stewart to Appear in Justice League Dark Film

on July 26, 2016

A short clip of John Stewart was shown in a featurette about the upcoming Justice League Dark animated film. It’s good to know John Stewart appears, but as his short scene is playing, producer James Tucker’s voice is overdubbed saying, “There are Justice League members in it, but they’re not going to be the focus.” Of course John won’t be the focus of something like Justice League Dark, and going by what was said, I don’t think we fans should expect too much from his appearance here. Whether or not you choose to check this film out for a likely minimal John Stewart showing is, of course, up to you.

As for me, I’m not sure. Justice League Dark isn’t a concept I’ve ever been interested in, so I won’t see the film specifically to see those characters together. I don’t follow all of DC’s animated films. I believe the last one I saw was Justice League War, and the last one (and one of the few) I actually liked was Batman: Under the Red Hood. Furthermore, I stopped following paltry John Stewart appearances a while ago, so I think I’ll pass on this unless I hear really great things about it, or it turns out that John has a decent role.

In any event, it’s good to see John in a cartoon again, and I think his design looks great, aside from him lacking green eyes. I suppose in this instance, some John Stewart is better than none, and it’s refreshing to see him instead of Hal Jordan.

At the moment, Justice League Dark doesn’t have an official release date, but is expected to be out later this year.
